A complementary DNA encoding the mouse homolog of the testicular relaxin-like factor was cloned from a subtractive complementary DNA library, comprising clones preferentially expressed in the testes of mutant w/wv mice. The predicted amino acid structure conforms with that for other members of the insulin, insulin-like growth factor, and relaxin hormone family, with A, B, and C (connecting) domains. Northern and in situ transcript hybridization showed that the gene is exclusively expressed at a… CONTINUE READING
